problems are happening in the book

There are so many different plot points and conflicts in this book, it is difficult to know where to begin. I suppose the main thing I would wonder is if James's struggle to come to terms with his racial identity and background ever gets resolved. I also recall worrying about how his mother Ruth would navigate the complex path she chose in life. I have read the book so I have to think back to what I might have thought. I hoped that as the years went by and James matured, he would begin to see past skin colour and do the best he could with what he had been dealt.
